Sports Flip Coming To WINZ
April 1, 2009 at 12:52 PM (PT)
The rumors have been running around the SOUTH FLORIDA market for months, and now they're coming true, as CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WINZ-A/MIAMI prepares to flip back to Sports on FRIDAY at 6p ET. The station replaced its Sports format (as "FOX SPORTS RADIO 940") with "SOUTH FLORIDA'S PROGRESSIVE TALK" in JULY 2004; before the original Sports format, it aired a general-interest Talk format as "SUPERTALK 940."
The SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL's TOM JICHA reports that the lineup will include the entire FOX SPORTS RADIO lineup except for mornings, when ESPN RADIO's MIKE AND MIKE will air 6-9a, and noon-3, when PREMIERE's JIM ROME will return to the market.
